Product Description

Amazon.ca

The Who Sell Out's pirate-radio concept goes south in the album's second half--the Who ran out of time before they could write enough faux commercials--but it still remains in many ways their best and most entertaining album. Pete Townshend and John Entwistle supply song after great song, and along with Keith Moon play them with power and focus. The classic single "I Can See for Miles" is matched on at least a handful of tracks, including the opening psychedelic-pop blast of "Armenia City in the Sky" (written by Townshend pal Speedy Keen), the hilarious social-interaction tales "Odorono" and "Tattoo," and the majestic mini-opus "Rael." This remaster's bonus tracks are occasionally too much of a good thing, but the Tommy rough draft "Glow Girl" is brilliant. --Rickey Wright

Product Description

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother Aug. 4 2010
Format:Audio CD
It's nice to have the mono mix and all of the bonus tracks but the sound quality is terrible. Yet another victim of the loudness war with this garbage edition. The mono mix in particular is muddy and just too loud. Look for the '95 release instead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent album (Vinyl) April 22 2014
By Jack
Format:LP Record|Verified Purchase
The Who Sell Out is one of my preferred album by The Who. The sound on the vinyl is very good and in my opinion better then it's CD counterpart. You don't get all the extra tracks from the CD reissue, but you get the better sounding album. A must for Who fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars The who are the best Sept. 29 2013
By Bootsy Bass TOP 500 REVIEWER

I have always been a fan and this re-master just gives so much more of a classic Who album. All they need to add is Petra Haden acapella version for it to be perfect.

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have bought ALL the single versions and DELUXE versions of ANY Who CD's.I must admit, I certainly like this CD but I guess, in the long run, die hard WHO fans might just enjoy their single copy of "Sell Out"

5.0 out of 5 stars PARADIGM OF POP ART CONCEPT ALBUM ROCK Feb. 15 2000
Format:Audio CD
"The Who Sell Out" (like Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon) represents the paradigm of concept album rock. The Warholesque pop art cover (showing the band hawking deoderant and baked beans)sets the tongue in cheek tone that weaves throughout the album. The supposed premise is that we are listening to a pirate radio station, complete with jingles, PSA's and a wide variety of pop styles that range from the levity of standard love songs (Mary Anne w/ the Shaky Hands)to socio-politacal class struggle (I Can't Reach You) to teen angst (Tattoo, Melancholia) to explosive power pop psychedelic guitar feedback wizardry (I Can See For Miles, Armenia City in the Sky). As a matter of fact, there are so many different styles and textures that you can remove the fairly lightweight concept and still have a superb collection of cleverly written, melodic pop songs that define the the time they came from (Summer of love 1967)and transcend it. No one turns a phrase like Townshend; this from Tatto: My dad beat me 'cause mine said mother, but my mother naturally liked it and beat my brother, 'cause his tattoo was of a lady in the nude and mother thought that was extremely rude. Additionally many of the songs work on several different levels; Odorono, for example, reperesents that song you hear on the radio and you're grooving to it and then only at the end it turns out to be nothing but a commercial for some trivial consumer good. A song that pretends to be a song but it's really trying to sell you something (whether product or ideology). But it's also about unrewarded talent, and traumatic disappointment as well as being a cautionary tale about the superficiality of stardom.
When the album was originally released in '67 it was slimmed up so it could fit on a single record.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Who's Psychedelic Radio Show Feb. 2 2004
Format:Audio CD
The Who's third album, 1967's "The Who Sell Out," was the band's very first concept album, the theme for the record being a pirate radio station that plays nothing but Who songs, complete with radio jingles & commercials (some genuine, some created by the band) sprinkled inbetween the tunes. It's a brilliant, fabulously inventive, totally *psychedelic* Who album, and one of the band's all-time greats. The festivities kick off with a "Monday Thru Sunday" jingle, and then the band charge in with the far-out gem, "Armenia City In The Sky," penned by guitarist Pete Townshend's chum John Keene, featuring elongated horns, psychedelic guitars, and a studio-tweaked vocal from Roger Daltrey. Pete Townshend's songwriting contributions to "Sell Out" are all gems, too, every single one of them: "Mary Anne With The Shaky Hand," the hilarious "Odorono," the coming-of-age tale "Tattoo," the lovely "Our Love Was," the legendary, explosive rocker "I Can See For Miles" (the Who's only US Top Ten hit), "I Can't Reach You," "Relax," "Sunrise," and the mini-opera "Rael" (with it's instrumental bridge later resurrected as the "Underture" from "Tommy"), while bassist John Entwistle delivers the hilarious jingles for "Heinz Baked Beans" & "Medac," as well as the macbre-ish tune, "Silas Stingy."But this remastered, expanded edition of "Sell Out" doesn't stop there: there's a whopping TEN bonus tracks of extra Who goodies recorded around the same time as the album.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Different View. Sept. 4 2007
Format:Audio CD
Having read through a lot of reviews/comments about this album, I find the accepted view is, that it is a great album, comparable to their best and that this 'version' comes with some good, but not necessarily essential, bonus material.
Oh, and there are even some people who don't like it.

Well I actually count myself lucky that I only got this album recently because it means my view of it wasn't skewed by familiarity with its much shorter former incarnation. I actually played it as is, unaware that the additional tracks had not been part of the original release.

My impression was one astonishment. Why was this album not widely trumpeted as one of the greatest works of the sixties? Why was "Tommy" considered a better album? I was mystified. A double album(as it must have been judging by its length)of this quality would surely be included in all those 'Best Album...' lists.
The truly amazing thing is the way that, although it is not a 'concept album' the music fits together to create an incredible barrage of striking imagery that all coalesces perfectly to create a 'whole' that really is greater than the sum of its parts. One of the strengths of the album is the lack(!) of well known tracks(the only one I knew beforehand was 'I Can See For Miles' this gives the record a lovely 'balanced feel'.

I find it very strange, now that I am aware of the original track listing, to think that the album was ever released without 'Early Morning Cold Taxi', the stunning instrumental showcase 'Hall of the Mountain King' and perhaps the gem of the whole album 'Girl's Eyes'(a perfect and sympathetic depiction of the fixated fan/band relationship).

It isn't the easiest "Who" album to like(it took me a few plays before it started to 'click'), and in this form there is so much more to digest than before, but I would suggest it has the potential to be the most rewarding long term listen of all their albums.
